Taylor & Waterfield Claim First GB Medal of the 2004 Olympicsl

Leon Taylor and Peter Waterfield became Team GBís first medallists on day one of the 2004 Olympics in Athens, in the 10m synchronised diving competition.

After narrowly missing out on a Bronze medal four years ago in Sydney, the pair were delighted to get on the podium and win Britainís first diving medal at an Olympic Games for 44 years:

"To come out and start off on day one with a silver medal is fantastic," Taylor said.

"It's not sunk in, I am speechless. It was an amazing feeling and it's really special to win the first British medal of the Games," Waterfield added.

Chinese pairing Tian Liang and Yang Jinhui won the competition, with the Australian world champions Matthew Helm and Robert Newbery being pushed into bronze-medal position by Taylor and Waterfield.

In the womenís 3m synchronised springboard competition, Jane Smith and Tandi Gerrard finished just outside the medals in fourth spot, just behind Australia who took the Bronze, but it was a fine performance from the pair who were Britainís first ever female finalists in the competition.

Congratulations from all at Quintic.
